County Executive Romaine's Statement on Reviewing Police Procedures Regarding Religious and Traditional Clothing During Investigations

HAUPPAUGE, NY-- “This event occurred during the prior administration. While officer safety is a critical concern in any police-citizen encounter, my administration does not condone any policy which would compromise a person’s religious beliefs or customs.  


Religious freedom is a cornerstone of our democracy, and I will immediately review our policies and procedures with the Suffolk County Police Department.”
